No puncture wounds, unless you count my lunch.
Should put a leash on that thing and teach it to hunt small animals, damn it's huge. I definately wouldnt mind a shotgun hole in my wall to get rid of that thing

Recluse bites are impossible to diagnose unless someone captures the spider or at least gets a picture of it. That almost never happens.

Commonly what happens is a spider bite (Pick any spider that can break the skin) gets infected.

pretty much, co worker got bit at work, didn't even know he got bit at the time but ended up at the doctors almost a week later from an infection, ended up with small chunk missing out of his arm.

I got bit by a black widow once. Took benadryl immediately and continued taking it. I got sick as hell, flu like symptoms. Bite turned raised,red and then hard and turned black right in the middle. it eventually scabbed over and went back to normal....looking back I probably should have went to the doctor.

I would take it serious.

Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman dies of liver failure after spider bite - Arts & Entertainment - CBC News

Then there is this news:

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, only two people died from spider bites between 2001 and 2005. Both were believed to be caused by brown recluse spiders.

Not bad unless you are one of the 2.

I wouldn't say humans are the most powerful animal on the planet, with equal playing field we can easily be bested by many animals. Our ability to use tools is all that makes us superior, imagine a Polar bear with body armor and a large caliber machine gun. I get what your saying tho.

Spider bites always make me think of a boss at my company, I really don't like the guy nor does anyone else. He had a big welt on his forehead for a week and he claimed it was a spider bite but in reality he had been jumped by a guy who found out he was boffing his wife.

The smallest creatures are often the most deadly, spiders are definitely on that list, but think of viruses, they are microscopic and can really tear you up or even kill you. Size does not always relate to power. It very humbling to think something so tiny can do so much damage.
